Lot Essay

US$300,000-500,000

With Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin dated 20 March 2014 confirming that the present watch is set with 1648 diamonds weighing 9.358 carats, instruction manual, product literature, leather wallet, slip case, fitted presentation box and outer packaging.

Reference 5720 was introduced to the market in 2011. The present watch is finely decorated with pavé-set diamonds with an enamelled dragon on the dial that extends to the bezel, depicting a five-clawed dragon striding amidst engraved clouds. The creation of each enamelled and engraved dragon uses 10 different enamel colours and each of these can be considered a unique piece because the details of the dragon with the enamel work will differ a very slightly on each pieces as it is made by hand.

According to our research, this is the first time ever this design has ever been offered at auction, underlining once again the true rarity of this exceptional model.

Furthermore, this rare watch is fresh to the market and for the first time offered at auction here at Christie's with excellent overall condition.
